Busy Hands and Hearts for Our Community in March, 2024

We gathered to make Easter ornaments and cards to hand out at nursing homes and to friends who come to our food pantry. We pray that the ornaments and cards will touch their hearts and remind them Jesus is risen and lives for them..

Busy Hands and Hearts for Our Community in December, 2023

We had a Women’s Christmas Fellowship at Alicia’s home on December 15th.  Instead of exchanging gifts, we decided to purchase and donate baby items for Today’s Choice Pregnancy Center in Newton, NJ.

Busy Hands and Hearts for Our Community in November, 2023

THANKSGIVING… a time to give thanks to our ever faithful God and a time to share His blessings with others.   

Together with Newfoundland U.M.C. we provided 31 Thanksgiving baskets for local families.  This mission work has been collaborated with our Sunday school children supported by Holy Faith Family for years.

  • Proclaiming Christ
    Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all peoples! (Psalm 96:3).
  • Supporting Missions
    And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation (Mark 16:15).

    Now may the God of peace … equip you with everything good that you may do his will (Hebrews 13:20–21).
  • Serving Others
    As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another (1 Peter 4:10a).
